I am doing a happy little snoopy dance. There is a good chance I will have a couple of books out before Christmas this year.

One is short stories, and the other is a kids cook book. No not self published. geeze you people are cynical.

I don't want to go into it too much, might just jinx myself and another Armageddon shall bestow itself on my head. Right SkippyMom? ~Giggle~ And just for the record, so no one gets confused, I was being playful, and giving Skippymom a shout-out. I enjoy reading her blog, I Make Soap. Even if I don't comment as much as I should.

Yep you too can be featured in a blog post if you reply almost daily and give me a what for when I might deserve it. I am in a very good mood so early in the morn. I have lots of things to be thankful for.

I was going through my photos yesterday, and that one on my sidebar of Large, it's the only one of him I could find on flikr that has him doing anything remotely farm/homestead related. Maybe there are some on my broke down pc. Husband said it was because Large didn't go outside much last summer, he was too busy turning into his mother. . . bookworm.

Husband and I listened to the James Talmage Stevens last night (Are You Prepared?) podcast here. Some friends of ours from APN and Pioneer Living were on. It was a good show, however when John (Pioneer living) said something remotely like what husband is wanting to do, he would start talking engineer speak again. I'm going to need to get John and husband together and hash it all out or something. I could barely hear the show at times. I finally told husband that he needs to sit there and look pretty.

I am in a experimentin' mood today. I wonder how much pain I can self inflict today all in the name of sci. . . homesteading. I have a few ideas, but I truly don't want it to hurt.

You are on my blogroll and the titles of your posts show up as you post, so when I saw the word "Giddy" I rushed over because I KNEW it had to be good news and no one deserves it as much as you.

And can I just say YAY! That is wicked exciting news. I will definitely be buying both. :D

And thanks for the shout out - I knew you were just teasing me, but funny you remembered I said that. LOL

Just know I wish you the best and sometimes your discouragement becomes mine and I want more for you, you know?

And may I ask - WHAT is Large doing? OMG I laughed at that pic'. Loving the one of Small, what a cutie and Medium is lovely - but really? What is your son doing? heehee

PS Sorry this is so long - but I wanted to say, never worry about commenting on my blog - you always know what to say at the time to say it, 'kay?

That would be Large's version of gardening. :D

He is covered in mud from the sweet potato trenches, it was so bad that it was running out of his shorts. All the boys looked like that, except Large was the worse.

Congratulations! I just added you recently and have enjoyed reading some of your blogs,and look forward to more. Sounds like I may have some books to look forward to as well. :)

SkippyMom said...

I don't think I will ever look at a sweet potato again without picturing Large. LOL [and they are on the menu Sunday!!]

Please come join my give away - it might bring some fun [and freebies] into your world! YAY!

Kick ass Phelan! Really good to hear. I wish you the best!

alrescate said...

Fantastic! You know I'll buy them both!

Mrs. Fuzzy said...

I LOVE your picture of Large! It's brilliant and hilarious! If that's what it takes to get him gardening then he certainly knows how to make it fun! (I hope he got to hand wash the laundry that day.)
